For The Love of Beer Tour
Come celebrate Valentine’s Day and Love, the Love of Beer that is, throughout the month February, on a guided walking beer tour through the beautiful, quaint mountain town of Manitou Springs, Colorado. Along the way we’ll sample some of the finest Colorado craft beers (you’ll LOVE them), share a little bit of local history, and talk about the craft beer phenomenon!
You will LOVE this version of our “Original 1872” walking beer tour as again we will feature some really unique Winter Beers. Winter beers are typically a little stronger, richer and full bodied. Our February tour promises some great winter inspired beers! One of our featured beers will be a rich Oatmeal Stout to help keep you warm on our walking tour of Manitou Springs.
Another great featured beer will be the “Shake” Chocolate Porter (Beer and Chocolate in one glass, what’s not to LOVE ?) from Boulder Brewing Company. And, instead of CO2, we use nitrogen which gives the beer a creamier, smoother feel. Nitro can also lessen bitterness in the brew. Give it a try! Also, be on the lookout for Golden Monkey from Victory Brewing Company. Golden Monkey is a sweet, Belgian-style tripel (up to 3 times the amount of malt) with the light flavors of banana and clove.
This month we will be introducing one of Colorado’s most popular craft beers, Laughing Lab, to our tour. Laughing Lab is from Colorado’s very own Bristol Brewing Company. Bristol describes Laughing Lab as a Scottish Ale with a “complex maltiness” and a “nutty, roasted flavor” that is “mildly sweet, but not to rich.” For those who LOVE their dogs as much as their families, this is a must. (Was that over the top? I never can tell.)
(Featured beers are subject to change without notice.)
